Tiger Woods is leading the 2010 Barclays with a sterling first round round today.
Maybe having his divorce finalized has cleared his mind because he put together one of his better rounds and is in the clubhouse with an early lead.
The word is that he missed only one fairway and two greens in a round of 6-under 65.
Tiger's 6-under 65 is his lowest round of the year and puts him into a tie for the lead with Ryan Palmer, although Palmer has five holes to go at the Ridgewood Country Club.
Of all the golfers within a few shots of the lead, only Davis Love III would be familiar to the casual golf fan.
Love is tied for fifth, two shots off the lead as he goes into the clubhouse.
With a good showing here, not only would Woods hold onto his No. 1 world ranking, but talk of not having a spot on the Ryder Cup team would also most likely go away.
There have also been rumors that because Woods needs a fresh start, he might part ways with long time caddie, Steve Williams.
But Williams's spot on the bag seems safe, at least through the Barclays.
Woods completed his round with seven birdies and only one bogey (on the par-4 12th hole).
With only one more hole to go in his round, Vaughn Taylor is also now tied for the lead with Woods and Ryan Palmer who has four more holes to go to complete his round.
By all accounts, Woods needs a good week to advance out of the first round of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
So this is just what the doctor called for, as the saying goes.
This comes while his ex-wife will be in People Magazine this week, telling her story.
She was quoted in the magazine as saying that she had "been through hell.''
Now that the divorce is settled, it seems that both of them are moving on.
